0 and 1 are triangular numbers, square numbers and pentagonal numbers.
It is conjectured that a(n) is always positive  this is one of the conjectures in Conjecture 1.1 of Sun (2009).  N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 01 2014
Note that both the conjecture in A160325 and the conjecture in A160324 imply that a(n) is always positive.  ZhiWei Sun, Apr 01 2014
a(n) > 0 for all n < 10^10.  Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 20 2016
